Volvo has unveiled their new Excellence Child Seat Concept at the 2015 Auto Shanghai. The new system has been showcased by Volvo as a new safety feature for infants in the car. This Concept was showcased at Shanghai following the launch of the Volvo XC90 Excellence with Lounge Console Concept.
Volvo has developed a swivel child seat concept, which pivots counter clockwise and can be locked into rear facing position as well. The new innovation comes as a new safety concept in the new XC90, which not only makes it easier for parents but also safe for children.
The company's research suggests that forward facing child seats could pose a problem for children between the ages of 3 or 4 due to the disproportionate size of a child's head along with lack of muscular strength in the neck. The new rear facing seat concept not only offers safety, but also allows the driver to keep an eye on the child in a much easier manner.
Volvo Cars’ design team, headed by Tisha Johnson, chief designer of Interiors at the Volvo Cars Concept and monitoring centre have listed out the benefits of rear facing seat concept which offers better ergonomics and comforts. It allows the child to have eye contact with driver or rear passenger while the seat also offers better storage facilities for storing diapers, bottles, wipes and other necessities required while travelling with a baby on board.
When your kids are little, it's all about taking care of them, pampering them and making sure you spend time with them and keep them happy. Volvo has made sure to take care of this while travelling as well. They want to ensure that on board luxuries are not just limited to individuals but also to families who travel with small children on board. The company had earlier showcased the world’s first rear facing child seat prototype in 1964 with their PV544 and the new XC90 is now expected to get the same innovative safety measure inside the car.
